This one-day adventure takes you thorough some of Scotland's most iconic scenery - past Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle - to reach the Isle of Skye. You'll then experience the very best that this magical place has to offer before returning home via the beautiful Black Isle.
And We're Off... Off to Loch Ness...
Your day starts with a bit of monster spotting as you drive along the shore of Loch Ness. You'll then stop close to the loch at the little village of Invermoriston, where you can take in the views and see a delightful ruined bridge which was designed by Thomas Telford, the engineer behind the Caledonian Canal.
Views of Eilean Donan Castle...
Your journey then winds through pretty Glen Moriston and Glen Shiel and on past the Five Sisters, a stunning range of mountains that dominates the surrounding landscape. We'll then make a stop so that you can see Eilean Donan Castle. This is one of Scotland's most picturesque castles and is perched on its own island at the head of Loch Duich.
Over the Sea to Skye...
Next you’ll cross over the bridge to Skye and head for Kyleakin, where there’ll be a stop for lunch. Your tour of this magical island takes in the stunningly beautiful sight of the Cuillin Hills on the road to Portree, the capital of Skye and its colourful harbour.
Homeward Bound via Applecross and the Black Isle...
Your journey then heads back to the mainland past the little island of Eilean Ban, where Gavin Maxwell, the author of the "Ring of Bright Water", lived for a while. You'll stop at the lonely village of Applecross and then be driven home via the scenic Black Isle. Finally, there are fabulous views over the Moray Firth to savour as you reach Inverness by way of the Kessock Bridge.
